Netanyahu attends ceremony for 75th anniversary of WWII roundup of Jews in Paris

Source: i24NEWS

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended a ceremony commemorating 75 years since the rounding up of 13,000 Jews at Paris's Vél d'Hiv stadium in 1942, the majority of whom were later deported and killed in Nazi extermination camps.

It was the first time the premier attended the ceremony and it is his first visit to Paris since 2015 after the attacks on Charlie Hebdo and the kosher supermarket Hypercacher.

....

In July 1942, 13,152 Jews were arrested at the request of the Nazis and by order of the French government in power. Held in inhumane conditions for four days, they were piled on the steps of the Velodrome d'Hive stadium (demolished in 1959), dedicated to cycling races, before being taken to camps in the Loiret. There, 3,000 children were brutally separated from their parents, and deported first to Auschwitz.

Less than a hundred of those rounded up - and none of the children - survived.

1. Thank you for posting.

Even though it won't get to many comments, I'm glad you remind us what evil things men are capable of.

"Those who forget the past....."

6. You are welcome.

Given the rise in anti-Semitism here and throughout the world, perhaps more people should be aware of the past and stop and think about the path we are on now.

3. This reminder is especially pertinent in these perilous times

We dodged a bullet when Macron prevailed. Among Marine LePen's talking points was a denial of French complicity in the Holocaust.
Unfortunately we didn't dodge the bullet here, our job now is to starch the bleeding and stay focused.

7. Correct on both accounts.

It is scary to see so many similarities starting to reemerge in this century. I sometimes wonder if it might not happen again, or at least an attempt will be made.
